Here's a nifty thing. Oscar-winning cinematographer Janusz Kaminski directed 11 very short films for the New York Times Magazine, and the Times has a released a behind-the-scenes video of Kaminski directing the likes of Cate Blanchett, Robert Redford, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Oprah Winfrey, Adele Exarchopoulos, Forest Whitaker, Oscar Isaac, Greta Gerwig, Michael B. Jordan and Julia Louis-Dreyfus for the projects. Check it out, below.
